History

The team was formerly known as the Wallace Rovers they were formed in 1925. The team played for a short time in the Dunnstown Football Association before going into recess in the mid-1930s.

Reforming and joining the Bungaree Football Association, Springbank soon had its first premiership in 1939 [1] then again in 1940. The interruption caused by World War 2 slowed the development of football in the area. Reforming again after the war, Springbank continued in the Bungaree FA until the competition folded and unlike the other clubs that moved to the Clunes FL Springbank went into recess.


A group of enthusiasts reformed the club in 1963 and the club entered the Clunes Football League. Success came immediately with the club winning five premierships in a row.


Springbank's senior side has had the most successful run of all clubs since joining the Central Highlands Football League with five premierships.
